And now that I have less than a week left, and am thoroughly jet lagged and slightly overwhelmed with all the fun, social to-dos-- gym dates, final beach trips of the summer, potlucks, lunch dates and a weekend day party-- I am now sleeping in. Keeping in mind I resume classes at Hunter this week, I only have this Friday & possibly Labor Day to work on my garden, which is in serious distress from a summer of
neglect travel, really walk my dog, and get myself organized for the upcoming school year.
So how does a teacher make peace with the end of summer and banish the back-to-school blues?
By enjoying every last hour of summer vacation, even if it means over-scheduling. And hey, I'll walk the dog
regularly in September.
